Good news, women of Texas! Your soon-to-be-senior senator agrees with Indiana senate candidate Richard Mourdock that your pregnancies that result from rape are a blessing.
Mourdock ignited a firestorm of controversy in a debate this week when he said — out loud, on the TV, when people could hear him — “Life is a gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that God intended to happen.”
Now, NRSC chair John Cornyn is standing by his man. So even though apparently God doesn’t want the ladies to get raped, and even if a pregnancy comes as the result of a brutal, violent attack or simply a total disregard for a woman’s right to consent, it’s all part of God’s plan!
